Whilst the official opening is yet to come, Paul the manager welcomed our group of walkers for the post walk meal as originally planned. The place has remarkably transformed since our last visit. High specification throughout to include the upstairs accommodation. Our meals were lovely and enjoyed by all. The staff were undergoing intensive training and it shows. They were... More

Attended my Grandads wake in the function room here. Food was lovely and nothing was too much trouble for the staff.

We always head for a pub with a Cask Marque when walking and this is the only one in the area so we were disappointed to find the building undergoing extensive renovation and in parts completely gutted with no roof. Due to reopen in the Spring I guess we'll have to go back then!

The Royal is closed at present as a major refurbishment is underway. When completed in spring 2017 it will offer accommodation as well as its usual selection of great beers and food.

A character old pub with no loud music. A real local, serving good food. We shared a whitebait starter and then ploughed into a huge fish and chips. With 3 drinks the bill was only £33. Good value.

Having a walk around Heysham reliving childhood memories we decided to have dinner in The Royal. We couldn't have 2 large glasses of wine as they had no large glasses, not a good start. My wife ordered the steak & ale pie which was very sloppy and lacking in steak and I had the gammon steak which was very good.... More

Found this place by accident when we were looking for an evening meal that wasn't in an overbright pub with tv sets blaring. The situation is perfect and we enjoyed a wander around the locality before and after eating. There was plenty of room and tables available in a choice of rooms. The staff were all friendly, helpful and efficient... More

The Royal has done down hill, I believe it closing for a six month refit....
